<< G. Moore and CERT >>
Most interesting (Nerlin ain't the only Nerd round here).
Catch 2 company names on the 1st days agenda (Aether Systems & 724 Solutions). They were in the basket I proposed (and yes CERT should have been in the basket). I'm watching SVNX & AETH closely.
There is another Mooore that could burst CERTS bubble. The Moore of Moore's law. ECC's claims less processing power requires than RSA for Public Key computations. Big advantage a few years back. 25 µm & 18 µm silicon technology allowing for very powerful processors on very small chips (which as an ARMH guy you already know) changes the paradigm, IMO.
I commented here on that (see Infineon "88" links):
G. Moore is well qualified to speak at CERT's PKS conference. He consulted to Security Dynamics (now RSAS) for a year. He treated the RSAS/CERT sector (not CERT itself but SDTI) in the original Manual. Dropped it in the 2nd. Knows PKS from the gorilla perspective. AMEX, MaterCard, Visa banks, are bowling pins.
Sheesh, I'm getting as bad as Judith talking about "something" here. Pardon Moi.
